I'm not sure why you'd want to do Day Skipper practical after Advanced Powerboat. You should have your theory up to Coastal Skipper level before your Advanced course … so why not do Coastal Practical, or even direct to YM Offshore? Unless you're switching codes and want to get some time/miles in a different type of boat, or you don't have the pre-requisite miles to go for a higher level course yet, Day Skipper feels like it could be a step backwards for you.
